  • 3/17/14: Atlanta Dynamo Water Polo is changing the way they’re working with high school-aged water polo athletes under their High School Training program. Going forward, interested athletes must apply to Dynamo's high school program through Dynamo's website. Unfortunately, Dynamo can no longer incorporate drop-in athletes at Dynamo Water Polo practices.

    2014 Dynamo High School Training Program Note that the deadline for applying to the Spring Session is this Sunday, March 23rd. Interested high school players must go through Dynamo's application process. If an athlete is selected for one of the fifteen available roster slots, they will be notified of their acceptance, along with additional program details.

    Dynamo believes that by adding structure, committment and clarity, the high school program will increase its impact on those who participate. Further details, including how to apply, may be found on the Dynamo website.
